Cupid and Dis: I like how this story shows another aspect in the relationship between Cupid and Venus. In my earlier storytelling, I wrote about the defiant side of their relationship. This one tells us that she is his mother and he loves her and listens to what she has to say. I feel like Venus is super jealous of everyone even though she is supposed to be the most beautiful person ever. She is annoyingly insecure and I hate it. She is so rude because of it.

Persephone's Fate: I'm glad they let her spend equal time in the heavens and equal time underground. That way she is with her husband and her mother. However, I still think the whole marriage thing is sketchy. I am done with these stories. They upset me because I have a more modern way of thinking than these stories do. I don't understand why Persephone has to stay put. If she doesn't want to be in the underworld then she shouldn't have to be.
